My question is:  How did you learn to cook?

Well, my father was a cook in the army, so there were a few things I learned from him, but I think on the most part I learned from my grandmother because I stayed with her quite a bit when I was little (weekends, spring vacation, summertime etc.), and she was from the old country so she did everything homemade.  She didn’t believe in store bought bread or mops, let me tell ya, but man she sure could cook up a storm.  She was from Palermo, Sicily.  Need I say more!

ALSO:  All those who entered the NAME THAT BAND CONTEST over at The Moody Mix, or are just curious the results are in!  WOO HOO!  NOT GOING TO SPOIL THE SURPRISE.  YOU’LL HAVE TO SEE FOR YOURSELF AND PERSONALLY I THINK THEY PICKED A GOOD ONE!

    I learn to cook through my grandmother. She taught me how.

    Here’s My Aloha Friday entry .. see yah.. 🙂


    I learned the basics by watching my dad; then picked up on a few skills just by doing it myself. Oh and I can’t forget Food Network (I love Gordon Ramsay & Racheal Ray!)



    Hey, how U doing??? Happy Friday Follow! Visiting and following from FF. Best of luck winning the cash giveaway. is freaking awesome!

    And Happy Aloha Friday. I learned to cook some through my mother, mother-in-law and mostly my husband. He’s much better than me.

    I took some classes in school and college. Then when I lived in other countries I took some classes on traditional foods there. Read cooking books, watched cooking shows. years of practice have evolved me into a cook.


    Cook? Hahahaha! I’m a horrid lie!

    Returning your Friday Follow! Have a wonderful weekend!


    Happy AF and FF.
    We had to take cooking class when I was in school.

    Have a great Friday!


    From helping my grandmother. She was a great cook/baker and would always let me help. She lived to be 100.


    I didn’t. 🙁 I STILL can’t cook!
    Visiting from My Kids Are Fun for Aloha Friday!


    Here for aloha friday!
    When my father died I became the family cook because I was his assistant cook when he was still alive. He was the family cook, before I took over.

    I have 2 entries for aloha friday this week. Please check them out.


    my mommy taught me ;D


    I’m not sure if I’ve learned how to cook yet! I guess I’ve picked up tips from TV and watching my parents and my husband.


    I learnt by watching my grandma when i was little and back then i probably cooked more than i do now!


    I am sure I taught myself by the recipe books and then after awhile you learn to just measure by guess. 🙂

    Happy weekend to you woman.

    Mostly from my Mom but I also learned a lot on my own when I was dorming in college.


    I’m a great cook but I didn’t learn until I was in my early 20’s (I’m on the sunnyside of 50 now) and learned by watching the tv cooking shows. I took to it like a fish to water. In fact my next blog is about making scones…okay those are easy, but I’ll be blogging about doing a big high tea type of thing with sandwiches and other treats. Anyway my best dish is turkey loaf with roasted potatos….simple but delicious! That’s my style.


    Here’s the thing. I never did learn to cook. Grandmother was a fabulous cook, though. Now trying to learn by osmosing from my husband, his mom, my mom, and just experimenting.

    Thanks for the Aloha Friday; I’ve posted my question here:

    Hope y’all like it; have a great day, all!

Thanks for the lovely comment!
